Since the clue is made to look like the hipster is saying it himself, I'd say the formulation is right. (Although the hipster might not be.)

Douchebags are a whole other category of annoying people. The clue could read "If I wear a V-neck, have large biceps and a tribal tattoo, what am I?"

Per the Oxford Dictionary of English, douchebag means an obnoxious or contemptible person, typically a man (in addition to a small syringe for douching the vagina, especially as a contraceptive measure). So your attempt doesn't really make sense.

Per the Oxford Dictionary of English, kno*head means a stupid person. Why would someone who has a moustache, drinks PBR and liked things before they were cool, be a stupid person?

I've actually never seen Top Gun, but there's a scene in Meet the Parents where the lady and her ex start calling each other Maverick and Iceman, and in the movie she later says "Top Gun was really popular at the time we were dating". So yeah, that's my little slumdog millionaire moment.

Spent too long thinking if cormorants come from Comoros. I’m guessing they don’t.

Well, the African cormorant is a scarce visitor to the Comoros, but the names are not related. Cormorant is derived from the Latin “corvus marinus”, sea raven.

Comoros actually come from the Arabic word "Qamar" which means "moon"

They are quite different things. Per the Oxford Dictionary of English, 'hippie' means (especially in the 1960s) a person of unconventional appearance, typically having long hair, associated with a subculture involving a rejection of conventional values and the taking of hallucinogenic drugs, while 'hipster' means a person who follows the latest trends and fashions, especially those regarded as being outside the cultural mainstream.
